interviewed him but said it didn't find any evidence that tamerlan tsarnaev was involved in terrorist activities. the fbi didn't follow up with him after he took a trip to russia scene chechnya. personally because russia did not give information to the fbi. the fbi doesn't have the manpower to keep tabs on every person they receive tips about. especially those like tsarnaev are already deemed not dangerous by the fbi. >> the ball was dropped in one of two ways. the fbi missed a lot of things. our laws do not allow the fbi to follow up in a sound, solid way. >> reporter: there is a good chance lawmakers will be able to question higher ups with the intelligence community in the coming days. possibly as early as tomorrow. more of the questions they want appsed next. live in washington kyla champ bell ktvu channel 2 news. >>> the man accused of mailing a letter containing the poison ricin to president obama is back in court today. paul kevin curtis has denied any involvement in the letter sent to the president or other letters that were sent to a u.s. senator and a judge. his lawyer days

of the brothers. tamerlan tsarnaev visited him when he traveled to dagestan last year. in the neighborhood where tamerlan and dzhokhar's father lives, the same sentiment. neighbors here on the street tell us they have a hard time believing what happened because they say the suspect's father is a good man. but the neighbors also say they haven't met the sons. dagestan is the russian federation's oldest, largest and most ethnically diverse islamic republic. its population of almost 3 million, predominantly muslim, has in recent years come under increased scrutiny by russian authorities. "they started closing our mosques and taking away our books," says this civil rights activist. and dagestan has attracted rebels from neighboring chechnya, hoping to spread a a pan-islamic separatist movement across the north caucasus region. investigators are still looking into whether tamerlan had any connection to militants in either dagestan or chechnya. adrian mong, nbc news, dagestan. >>> back in boston, this was a day of reflection as the dead and wounded were remembered, and the city began to reopen after t

and keep surveiling them every minute of the day? host: the about how the older , thisr tamerlan tsarnaev issue with the fbi impacted his immigration status. about we will learn more this. it appears that the russian government was concerned about him. he had gone back to russia for six months in 2011 for about six months. the russian government was clearly somewhat concerned about his activities and alerted the fbi in the united states to keep an eye on him when he returned home. what has come out is the fbi did interview him and did a cursory investigation and decided there was no cause for concern. i suspect there will be a big focus on that as the investigation proceeds, why did the fbi not follow up on that. you can come up with plausible explanations. the relationship between russian law enforcement and u.s. law enforcement has not been very good over the years. so maybe it was the russian warnings were discounted. it's not clear this necessarily would have been an immigration issue. he had a green card and was entitled to come back and forth freely from the united states. outnforma
, over his involvement with jihaddy websites and other activities? tamerlan tsarnaev is the fifth person since 9/11 who has participated in terror attacks after being questioned by the f.b.i. e was preceded by nidal hasan, drone casualty anwr an all i can, abdul hakim muhammad, born carlos he willon bledsoe, -- leon bledsoe, who murdered an army recruit in little rock in june, 2009, and david headley who provided intelligence to the perpetrators of the mumbai massacre in 2008. that doesn't count, the subject of warnings to the c.i.a., that he was a potential terrorist. if the intelligence yielded by the f.b.i.'s investigation is of value, will that value be compromised when his trial is held as it most certainly will be in a civilian court? dokedoke's lawyers will seek to ctor doke tsarnaev's lawyers will seek that. to show that his late brother was the dominant conspirator who had access to resources and people. there's also cause for concern in that this was obviously a suicide operation. not in the direct way of a bomber who kills all of his victims and himself at the same time by blo
questions in the boston marathon bombing. what was the motive? the f.b.i. says it interviewed tamerlan tsarnaev in 2011 after being told by a foreign government, reportedly russia, he had become a follower of riradical islam. they found no evidence of terrorist activity at that time. did the chech anyian brothers act alone or was it a broughter plan with coconspiracies in the u.s. or overseas? wayne simmons, a former c.i.a. analyst and joins us now with some insight. thank you for coming in today. >> always a pleasure. >> i want to ask you about this. the way that the bombs they use have had been described, you know, many law enforcement sources said they were too sophisticated for somebody who was going to google and throw something together that the brothers had to have training at some point. for what they are accused of doing. what do you make of that? >> all of us, first of all, those agree that nothing today is 100% certain. that is where we need to start. if i had to make a guess, i would remind guys like me that 12 years ago, 13 years ago the chechens were in afghanistan trying

: the about how the older brother tamerlan tsarnaev, this issue with the fbi impacted his immigration status. guest: we will learn more about this. it appears that the russian government was concerned about him. he had gone back to russia for six months in 2011 for about six months. the russian government was clearly somewhat concerned about his activities and alerted the fbi in the united states to keep an eye on him when he returned home. what has come out is the fbi did interview him and did a cursory investigation and decided there was no cause for concern. i suspect there will be a big focus on that as the investigation proceeds, why did the fbi not follow up on that. you can come up with plausible explanations. the relationship between russian law enforcement and u.s. law enforcement has not been very good over the years. so maybe it was the russian warnings were discounted. it's not clear this necessarily would have been an immigration issue. he had a green card and was entitled to come back and forth freely from the united states. if information had come out through the fbi investiga
